Connect it to your computer with a supplied USB or Firewire cable and use the software supplied on CD with the Digital Camcorder. If you have a Firewire cable, but nowhere to put it, you'll need a Firewire card or a Firewire adaptor, which can be bought from most computer retailers.

Want to use digital cam as web cam and want use hard disk directy

Unfortunately, you're going to have to buy one or two more cameras.

The A470 was not designed to stream images and videos to a computer, but to record them onto a memory card. It cannot be used as a webcam. Nor cannot it be connected to a computer to save images directly to your hard disk.

Canon's digital SLRs can store images directly to your computer using dedicated software, but they cannot be used as webcams.

So, if you want a webcam, you need to acquire one. Likewise, if you want to save images directly to your computer, you need a camera that can do that. Some webcams can record and store still images, but they tend to be rather low-res, often only 640x480 (0.3 megapixels). Even HD video is only 2 megapixels. Webcams and cameras are two completely different things.

My webcam image is upside down on massenger....How can i fix it ?

Windows Live Messenger Camera Image Upside Down(Iinversed Image) is the issue.You have probably tried to debug the problem with no result. Every information you found on the internet or what you were told to do yielded no benefit. You restart your computer depressing F8 to see if in safe mode things can be alright yet there is no difference from the normal system mode. This prolem has something to do with your system camera driver you installed or perhaps there is no cam driver installed in your system. Sometime it can be caused by the inverse system tool incorporated into the windows live messenger video section. Nevertheless, the best way to get your video image upright is as follows:


Uninstall any cam driver you installed in the system before(for those of you who have tried everything possible yet with no result).Also uninstall the windows live messenger from your system


Goto google search engine and type ccleaner and download it to clean the system and fix the registry editor.

Get your cam drive ready for installation. For those of you who doesn't have a cam drive you can go to google search engine to download possible one that is compactible with your system.


Run the installation wizard of the cam driver and install it.


Download windows live messenger from the internet .


Check your webcam or rather the video section of your windows live messenger if is upright now.

NB: If the video image is still upside down you will have to check you cam driver installed in the sytem from the control panel and untick inverse.

The WEB cam (camera) is normally a USB device, it can send and capture video images as well as still images. You can talk and see people over the Internet with a WEB cam.
You need to install WEBcam software for that particular model WEBcam on your computer and configure it to run with Skype, or any other VOIP (voice over IP) software. The WEBcam software will allow you to create a video (movie) and take still photos, it will allow you to store these images on your computer.

Connecting the Pentax S50 to computer

hi there

there doesnt seem any problem i what youve explained. its just that your saying that it doesnt show any images as fast like before.

i suggest that you use another software which is easier to use and actually is particular to pictures and videos. whenever you connect your cam to the computer, this software will identify the pics inside your cam.

you can download Picasa2 @ which is under the Imaging Tab.

hope this helps you.
